His wife is from STL - she has *very* deep roots there. Put it this way....when they got married there was a pre-nup....and it wasn't to protect him.

The Blues may well not qualify Demitra unless they decide to do it in the hope that they can trade him after a new CBA is negotiated. That, or if what he gets in arbitration is more than the Blues are willing to pay, they'd walk away and not lose anything. (Think: Bryan Berard vs. Boston Bruins, 2003 offseason) I also figure that Jamal Mayers won't get qualified after his pathetic play this season.
